    I enjoy my revolvers and especially like this old S&W six-shooter.

    It was actually made early in 1951, but it left the factory on July 6, 1951. It was shipped to Harvan Sporting Goods Co. in New York City (good luck ordering one now to NYC).

    It's a Smith & Wesson .357 Pre-Model Five Screw Variation, 3 1/2" barrel, blue finish, and checkered walnut stocks. My best one:

    That is a purty one. It would fit well in my cabinet. I do have an open spot on shelf 2. Maybe I need to start looking?

    Many thanks,

    We know the above pre-27 is a five screw. I have a few more that didn't make the cut as #1.

    These are S&W Model 27 (no dash) in good condition (April 1,1960):

    If you ever decide you don’t need all of these old revolvers anymore I might just be able to help you out. Lol

    Wheel guns Rule. Everyone remember that.

    And like I noted above, I do have that empty spot on a shelf. Hint, Hint, HINT!

    So if you need a hint on something, you just got it.

    Thank for the compliments. I am in the SWCA and have shown the revolvers. I like the pre-27, the 27 (no dash), and the 27-1 (made only one year). I sold several pinned 27-3's over the years to get here.

    So hinting is not doing anything?
